This is really sweet! I love seeing people's experiences in AC. I can't/don't play, but it's really nice to see how helpful it was for so many during 2020, and I love to see how invested people get in it. It's like the characters aren't characters at all, but the little people that live inside your screen. It's really endearing and nice to see how so many people find comfort in this super chill game.

Thanks!! Yeah, since we couldn't go out but people could come over and trade/catalog what they needed from each other to build a world where they could explore and make our own. Even though I have most items in the game, I JUST found more new ways to play because I'm playing in a community.

There is always something for someone to do, once you fix one this, another thing looks wrong. New designs come and items come out all the time, so you can re-design as much as you like.  Some of my friends don't play anymore but they open the game just to play with me because we can't see each other in real life.

I dig the idea of turning your gameplay experience to a zine :D  Everyone have their own unique story in AC:NH and this is so great.

Ya, my friends tell me their personal Animal Crossing stories and they are really side-splittingly funny. The villagers do have certain stock phrases and interactions but each person has their own personal experiences with some. I forgot to put in that  Pippy once made four villagers cry in a row, back to back!

I feel like everyone has the same shared experience playing so they can relate or they can be like, "I didn't feel like that at all and it was like this for me. I almost did a zine about food but I was like, "it seems like more of a job than a hobby the more I work on this" where Animal Crossing is more of a fun hobby.

I think besides being a hobby in itself, Animal Crossing also includes many hobbies. Decorating, planting, fishing etc. , each one of them deserves it's own zine :D

I honestly forgot there are little things in the game like that could be considered something that would be a hobby in itself. Fishing mastery and bug catching mastery and all the weird places bugs land are such a thing! Even the weird choice of scaling when you make figures, my friend and I talk about it sometimes.
